It’s Friday! Which means it’s time for another Five Facts Friday.
1. I spent the day yesterday with some great co-workers at the Greater Omaha Young Professionals Summit. It was an amazing conference filled with useful seminars designed to help you grow professionally, personally, and philanthropically. I tweeted out a lot of the advice that really resonated with me on Twitter, so make sure to check out my feed if you want a play-by-play

I hope you had a great Mardi Gras. I had dinner and drinks with girlfriends and grabbed (more) drinks with Josh. It was fun getting into the spirit of the day.
Maybe I got a little too into the spirit. ;p
Something I can never get too into is running.
Do you want to get silly and dress up in a costume? There’s races for that. (Please notice

I know this week has been extra fitness-focused on here, but after not being able to work out for so long, it feels so good to be able to move again!
A little over a month ago I got these super sweet Reebok ZQuicks to test out and review. Seriously, how beautiful are they? I had never run in Reebok sneakers

I have a mantra in life. It’s “work smarter, not harder.” This may sound strange to some, but know it’s not about putting down hard work. It’s about not doing unnecessary hard work when there’s a smarter way to handle the situation. If you’re hitting a brick wall over and over again maybe it’s time to stop throwing yourself at the brick wall

Hey everyone! It’s been a long time since my last post! Long story short: I’ve been sick. I still haven’t kicked my upper respiratory infection, but I am a million times better than I was last week. I have so much to fill you guys in on: a Justin Timberlake concert, a chocolate tour, and our Valentine’s Day celebrations. But today I want to talk about a race. After two weeks of no real movement

Happy Friday! Another week has come and gone. Its been a great one but I’m ready for some R&R.
1. I have been so exhausted all week and dealing with not so fun headaches. Monday and Tuesday I got in great workouts but Wednesday I came home and immediately went to sleep after work. I was so tired, and only woke up to go to bed. Thursday I had a work event in the

Have you guys heard of the Diva Dash? It’s a 5k run that’s coming to Omaha. It’s all about celebrating women running and having fun with your girlfriends.
Molly sent me info about the race today and asked if I’d be interested in being on a team. I’ve never run a team race before but am so excited to get to. The race is on March 22nd and our team is Molly, myself, Joanna,

This weekend Josh and I ran the Ugly Sweater Run 5k around downtown Omaha. It was cold, it was packed, and it was absolutely awesome.
There were over 3,000 racers dressed up in their ugliest sweaters. It was 20 degrees and Christmas music was blasting. We had no idea what the experience would be like but we were so excited.
Josh and I wore his and her penguin sweaters. (From Kohls!) We wore

Most bloggers I read tend to start a blog because they have a unique skill or talent they want to share readers. Some are crazy awesome athletes, others create the most delicious recipes. I created my blog not to share a talent with the world (sorry guys) but to share my personal journey learning about health and fitness, and to document my life.

This past Sunday Josh and I woke up bright and early, got into costume and headed to Werner Park.
We were running The Great Pumpkin Run 5k! I’ve never done a costume run before so I was really looking forward to this. I went as a Minnie Mouse and Josh went as a pirate. I’m pretty proud of how they turned out considering we decided the night before that we should probably put costumes
